I get asked ALL THE TIME how I started my business and do what I do from working my 9-5. I always tell them the same thing… I found something I loved to do, hated my job and was damned and determined to make it my FULL-TIME GIG!! But it wasn’t as clear-cut as that sounds… let me explain!
When I worked in the corporate world I often heard “Oh your full of ideas but you need to put them into action” “Your full of ideas but we just don’t have any way to make them a reality, we don’t have the money, we don’t have the staff” and that is when I got fed up and realized that my ideas could be better put to use helping my clients and students build their business much like I was trying to help the company I worked for but they were just full of excuses – side note (If you know me, you know I HATE excuses)
It didn’t take me long to figure out that the small clients I was helping here and there with creative marketing ideas, minor graphic design or social media jobs could grow into a full-time business for me where I was actually able to make a difference in someone’s business with my creative ideas.
